We are very proud to announce, that our film SEW THE WINTER TO MY SKIN was selectd as South Africa‘s official entry for the 91st Annual Academy Awards (Oscars) in the Best Foreign Language Film Category.
The National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF), an agency of the Department of Arts and Culture, assembled a South African Academy Awards Selection Committee, comprising of professionals from the various fields of the filmmaking value chain. The committee sat over two days to view the 4 films submitted and ultimately selected SEW THE WINTER TO MY SKIN.
The committee applauded the film as an unmistakeable bold, South African voice that tackles historical and contemporary issues, in both South Africa and the world. Global audiences will be able to resonate with the story while being taken on a skilfully crafted cinematic and musical journey. „The director’s choice of minimal dialogue is both visionary and bold, a true testament of utilising music, performance, and visual cues to engage audiences“, the committee wrote.
